IRA Legend Awards: Celebrating Our Leaders

We know it’s hard to always travel to central Indiana, and we want to make sure we reach all our members to let them know how much we appreciate them. Throughout our year-long 75th Anniversary celebration we will be traveling throughout the state. After kicking off the year at our golf outing, the Indiana Restaurant Association is now bringing the Annual Meeting to northern Indiana.
Legend Awards At each event we will be giving special recognition to members for their long time commitment to the Indiana Restaurant Association – the people who helped organize and build the foundation for the IRA, and continue to support the industry through their participation.
Do you have employees that have been with you for 20 years or more? As part of our 75th Anniversary, the Indiana Restaurant Association has launched an exciting new program to recognize the long-term dedication of employees who make up the backbone of our industry – the Indiana Restaurant Legends Award!
To qualify for the Indiana Restaurant Legends Award, an employee must: 1. Be nominated by an IRA member. 2. Have worked at the member restaurant for at least 20 years. 3. Personify exemplary service and dedication.
An attractive certificate acknowledging the award will be designed for the employee. Another certificate will be framed and presented to the restaurant owner to be displayed proudly on the premises. Press releases will be issued to the local news media highlighting the remarkable service of the Indiana Restaurant Legend in his or her area.
We encourage members who employ an Indiana Restaurant Legend, or know of one in their area, to apply today. Together, we can spread the word about those outstanding examples of service and dedication in our midst.
